Garena announced that DC Comic’s first hero in Arena of Valor (AOV), Batman, is available as a permanently free-to-play character for all players in the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. Players will be able to own The Dark Knight hero himself by simply logging into the game​ ​from​ ​November​ ​10,​ ​2017​ ​onwards.

Tencent, the game developer, has collaborated with DC Comics to produce iconic characters that will be included in the game along with the 36 heroes currently available to play. The long-awaited hero will be the​ ​first​ ​DC​ ​character​ ​to​ ​be​ ​released​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Philippines,​ ​Malaysia​ ​and​ ​Singapore.

Batman is expected to be a crowd favorite with his high-burst damage and his ability to move in and out of battles swiftly. The Dark Knight has the ability to deal sufficient damage with his skill rotation, allowing his teammates to clean up the battlefield. This melee assassin is predicted to be a popular pick especially amongst high-skilled players who enjoy strategizing and manipulating their hero’s skills to
counter​ ​enemies.

AOV is Garena’s first Mobile MOBA which was first launched in Taiwan back in October 2016 and was officially released in the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore last ​​October 17, 2017. AOV climbed to the top​ ​spots​ ​on​ ​both​ ​the​ ​Apple​ ​App​ ​Store​ ​and​ ​Google​ ​Play​ ​store​ ​within​ ​the​ ​first​ ​week​ ​of​ ​its​ ​release.

Garena AOV can be downloaded through the Google App Store (​here​) for Android users as well as through​ ​the​ ​Apple​ ​App​ ​Store​ ​(​here​)​ ​for​ ​iOS​ ​users.
